TOPIC: Should there be a Metal hall of fame?
[Return_of_Darth_Painkiller_0870] Tuesday, July 01, 2008 5:34:27 AM 
Don't get me wrong, I love Led Zep, but they are rock, not metal.  How the heck can a band with a ton of folk songs be considered metal?  I think you're listening to Stairway To Heaven and a Whole Lotta Love too much, my friend.  Perhaps you should listen through their whole catalogue?  Travelling Riverside Blues?  Very metal indeed.  How about Friends?  Bron-Yr-Aur?  Or maybe I'm Gonna Crawl?  Better yet, there's Carouselambra?  There's a reallllllllll metal song for ya.

Deep Purple also isn't metal.  If so, you might as well lump Kiss and Aerosmith in there too.  All 3 rock acts are really damn close, but not quite there.  Early Sabbath is definitely metal.  That being said, DP only had two cds that could be considered metal - Machine Head and Perfect Strangers.  I bet if you asked Ian Gillen if he thought the Purple were metal, he'd probably order you and him a good stiff drink and tell you they're a rock band.  Kiss is arguably the closest out of Purple, Aerosmith and Kiss.  Their sound is very crunchy and agressive.  Aerosmith is the least metal of the 3 easily.  I won't even go into why, since it should be evident from listening to their music.  Rush isn't metal either for that matter.  Great progressive rock band, but if you want a prog artist that sounds metal, look to King Diamond/Mercyful Fate and Dream Theater.  I can keep going on, and write a book about the difference...but I don't want to bore the shit out of everyone either.
